Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 24 - Live It Up (Mental as Anything)

Well, it's been a while since I posted a childhood musical memory.  Plenty going on in my life, but the biggest highlight was going to the cinema to watch Star Trek Into Darkness (More about that later).  For now, I want to share with you the next "Song that reminds me of my childhood"......

 
Live It Up was a big hit for Australian new-wave group Mental as Anything and was released back in 1986.  It reached number 3 in the UK charts, and was featured in the crap Paul Hogan movie "Crocodile Dundee".  Ok that does it no favours, but have a listen.  It's fun and lively - typical mid 80's pop.

As with Invisible Touch by Genesis, this is another song that reminds me of family nights out walking from Leigh-On-Sea to Southend.  Many of the pubs we visited would play this on the jukebox whilst I drank my drink (a pint of orange juice) and played classic arcade games. 

Ahhhhhhh the memories.
